Gallagher Ltd was awarded the contract for the Phase 1B Strategic Infrastructure package for the Aylesham Village expansion. This is a continuation of the works previously secured on the previous two phases of the scheme.

Once again the works were competitively tendered, with the award criteria based on a marking scheme for financial evaluation, programme, quality submission and post tender interview. Our score against these criteria was 87%, an improvement of three marks on our previous award on this scheme.

Works involve the construction of new roads and drainage for future phases of the development, and the construction of two new substations to serve the needs of the development.

There was a major new neighbourhood park to construct, inclusive of all soft and hard landscaping. Two other landscaping schemes were also included in the contract.

A significant amount of Section 278 works was included in the package. This involved the construction of a new roundabout off site at the A260  junction with the slip road leading onto the A2 dual carriageway which involved significant planning and traffic management.

This contract award was thanks to the quality of our previous works on the site and our tender.

Aggregate was supplied by our Hermitage Quarry and ready mix concrete from Gallagher’s concrete plant in Ashford.
